    I recently got a brand new late 2011 15" MacBook Pro; about nine days ago, to be exact. I read on several websites, including Apple's very own support site, that battery calibration is recommended. So I went ahead and did it last night. However, my understanding is that you need to let it sleep for a minimum of FIVE hours. I did it for only three and then plugged the charger back into the MacBook.

    Maybe I'm being a little paranoid, but does it matter if it's slightly less than the recommended sleep time?


    Thanks in advance.

    Newer unibody Mac notebooks come pre-calibrated and do not require regular calibration. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Now why didn't I know this? :) So doing what I did last night didn't hurt the MBP at all, did it?


    Thanks a lot!

    Not at all. You'll learn a lot if you take the time to read the Battery FAQ.
